Building products are regulated according to ASTM and international standards and classified according to different fire protection classes. OWA ceiling systems meet these requirements.
The relevant standard for ceiling products e.g. “wet felt” mineral panels, metal etc. is ASTM E 1264 “Standard Classification for Acoustical Ceiling Products”. The relevant test standard is ASTM E 84 “Test Method for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials”.
According to ASTM E 1264, ceiling tiles are divided into different classes according to their fire behavior. The classification is verified by a test certificate issued by a certified testing laboratory (e.g. EXOVA). Products from our OWAcoustic ranges are available in the “Class A” classification according to ASTM E 1264/ ASTM E 84.
